Members vote overwhelmingly in favour of proposed mediated settlement

Text only block

Your negotiating team has just completed counting the ballots for ratification of the proposed mediated settlement, which now forms the new collective agreement with the Government of Alberta.
Approximately 46 per cent of those eligible to vote cast ballots. Of those, 91 per cent voted in favour.

This round of bargaining has been difficult. But now that we have a ratified collective agreement, we can at least welcome a level of stability and predictability that we haven’t experienced previously with the Government.  

Your GSBC wants to thank you all for your patience, your engagement, and your determination over these past months, and for your participation in the ratification vote.  

Take care, stay safe.  

In Solidarity,  

Government Services Bargaining Committee
